Notable role (as a child): Danny Robbins in City Slickers (1991)

How's this for a shitty break: Jake Gyllenhaal's parents forbid him from auditioning for The Mighty Ducks as a young kid, but he was allowed to star in 1991's City Slickers as Billy Crystal's son. Flying with Gordon Bombay vs. getting noogies from the old guy who hosted the Oscars? That's not a real argument.
